Excuse me for being so straight forward but.....A large percentage of our population is just plain lazy! That's right, lazy! Over 200 years ago men fought for the right to be free from Kings who ruled with absolute power and authority. They fought for the right to choose their own path in life, to worship the God of their choice and to set in place a new system the world had never seen before. A system that allows men to choose their leaders in a civil way and respect the end decision of the group as a whole. They fought and died for your right to VOTE! I find it rather offensive that only about 50-55% of the voter age Americans in this Country turn out to vote on election day. I also find it offensive that people get upset or angry that they have to hear political speech on the news or read it on facebook. I know. I know. You're tired of hearing about it and you wish people would just shut up. Well maybe you should say something, read something or better yet get off your butt and do something in regards to our upcoming election. No. No. Instead you will sit and complain about all of those who are doing something, complain again when your favorite candidate loses and yet again when you suffer the consequences of being lazy. You shouldn't be annoyed by this process. You should be proud! You should be happy! You should fall to your knees and thank Jesus that you have this right. A right that many more around the world will die to try and achieve. Don't disrespect those that died for your right to vote. Get up, get out, get involved and VOTE! It's what makes us the greatest Nation on the planet!
In my opinion, if you don't vote you're not American, you're lazy!
If I have offended you, TO BAD! It's my right to do so! Men fought and died for that right as well.
